My name is Ashley Foust. I am originally from Newport, TN. Over the last few years, I have continued to make my way farther northeast. I am a Tusculum College alumna. I love to travel and see new places, but as far as I’m concerned, Tennessee is ideal. This is my 2nd year at T.A. Dugger Jr. High, and I can’t wait to meet a new group of outstanding students! I can be found in room 25B, where I teach 7th grade English Language Arts. I love discussing big ideas in literature and helping students communicate their ideas through writing. I feel most successful when my classroom is a place where students feel safe and respected.
